Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hello Lovelies! As we make our resolutions and check them twice, I thought we could start a skincare version of the Weekly Challenge. Many of us wanted to use more masks, shop our stash and focus on our Skin so hopefully this thread will be an inspiration to do just that. Join us with pictures and comments down below.

 

Masking Spreadsheet Info

 

Spoiler

Hello every, @eshoe and I are very happy to present the BIC Masking Challenge Spreadsheet. The idea is to have an easily searchable database of masks and reviews as a reference point when we are considering our next purchase. Data integrity was important to us so instead of everyone inputing data directly into the spreadsheet where theoretically information could be deleted or edited we have the questionnaire. It should take no longer then 1-2 minutes with the option for a more detailed review (which you can copy from your post on this thread).

 

Remember the idea is not to replace this thread. I personally love reading, commenting and interacting with all you amazing women here and that shouldn’t change. This would just be on top of that. Hopefully the more people that partake in this, the larger database of information we’ll have for reference. It will be extra effort in the beginning but then we would only need to input any new mask we’ve tried.

Since we aren’t allowed to post links, please PM or myself for it. You will also find this information on the original post so you don’t need a database to search for this post!


 Incase you need some help to filter/search results, try this :-

 

Search Specific Word or Phrase —> Edit -> Find and Replace -> Search Word

Filter/Organize by Columns --> Data -> Create a Filter -> Select Options
 

There are 2 ways to edit a response: 

1) Once you have completed a survey, click on the "Edit Your Response" link on that page. Once this page is closed, the only way to make a change is to:

2) PM @Aaliaa or @eshoe to make the change directly in the response spreadsheet

 

Thanks @eshoe for putting this together!

 

 

 Rules

Each week there will be a new Masking Challenge posted. It will range from type of mask, brand specific week or fun challenges along the way.

Choose mask, take picture (with mask on or before), place mask on face, relax and dream of the next Sephora purchase you want to make, remove mask for healthier skin.

Have Fun!!

P.S. If you have any suggestions or challenge recommendations feel free to message me and I'll add them to the list.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

The past 3 days of C sheet masks - Capricorn, Collagen and more Collagen 🙃 Still going strong with daily masking!

 

I’m not going to do a big review ecause these all have my stamp of approval ❤️. There are a few notable things though. The Capricorn mask smelled, to me, very strongly of white flower and that wasn’t one of the main “essences” listed on the mask. Of the two collagen masks I definitely prefer the Lapcos but the Creme Shop is a good option too!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

The Creme Shop's zodiac line seems so silly and strange, but I just checked out my sign, and now I want to try it....

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ohhh nice masking @scott1201! I had a bunch of C masks lined up but because I'm trying out new skincare I didn't use them.... I didn't want to overwhelm my skin.

Mask of the Week Challenge!

I used the tatcha mask yesterday. was very excited to use this after I received it in boxycharm. the fit was not the best, even though it was a thinner mask. the serum was very silky and milky in color, I'm assuming the texture of the serum is why the mask kept bubbling up in certain spots. not super thrilled to see alcohol in the ingredients, but it is extremely low.I left it on for 20 min, and pat the serum in. my skin was so soft! it lasted all day, just that silky tatcha feeling you get with many of their products. now I will not go and purchase these on my own, I just wasn't that impressed overall. I'd rate this one a B due to the constant struggle with the mask coming up in certain spots and the alcohol

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks for this review, @lmaster! I've been curious about the Tatcha ones, but I'm not loving that price point for something that isn't flat-out amazing. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster I've been wondering about this mask and so glad to see your review. Sounds like one I might pass on because of cost and fit. I like a lot of Tatcha products,  I do hate when you have to adjust the mask the whole time!! Thanks for great review!!☺

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks for your thoughts @lmaster! I'm pretty sure I have this one in my stash. Soft skin sounds nice but pretty pricey if that's the only thing really going for it.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks for your review @lmaster, I was pretty curious about this one! I guess when. mask reaches a certain price point there are some expectations and this doesn’t sound like it met them. I wonder if a thinner mask would have worked better🤔

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I tried to use this mask last night as but my face just was not having it Smiley Sad  A few mins in I started feeling a burning sensation so left it on a little longer to see if it would go away but nope. So took it off and my face was a little red so I rinsed the serum and just applied regular moisturizer. Felt better in the am. 

 

I wanted to like this mask because of the coconut and wanted to give my face some extra moisture. Guess not with this one. 

 

Not sure which of the ingredients wasn't working for me - maybe the fragrance. It did have a scent to it when I opened it but not a fragrance like more of a chemically like. I dont usually have sensitive skin but I do remember trying some Lancome products and my face reacted with their stuff which I assumed was the fragrance. I couldn't stand the scents either because of my nose sensitivity.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

So sorry for the bad reaction @GalPalVal17. Smiley Sad  Glad your skin was good by morning!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh no, @GalPalVal17! I’m so sorry this one wrecked such havoc on your skin😱 I’ve tried the Fruits Gelato Brightening one and love it. I do wonder if the culprit is the coconut. My daughter has redness and burning with some coconut products, though not all. Hope your masking this weekend has a better outcome😊!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe I’ll definitely have to pay more attention when using coconut products to see if that may be what it is. Thanks for the tip

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’m sorry that this mask irritated your skin @GalPalVal17 ! I’ve tried some Lancôme creams that my mother uses and they irritate my skin too ! I think it’s the added fragrance that’s used in their very fragranced products! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I got the Dreamskin Sample bag, which included the #LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask, I've been using it for the last 4 nights and 'though it has removed the dead skin, it has not left my lips soft.  I still need to use a lip moisturizer. 

 

Yay!  I just noticed I'm now a rookie 3, with this being my 200 post according to the profile bubble.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@byme4u - I am still trying to figure out my thoughts on this lip mask. I appreciate the smooth texture but yep, I agree that it may not be moisturizing enough. Thanks so prompting this discussion with other ways to use it.

 

@cianni - that's so interesting yet also so strange on Laneige's part. I just double checked the Details and How to Use and neither mention using it on top of another product. If that's what the company intended they should add it to the product packaging as opposed to a secret shared by their reps. I appreciate you passing it along.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@ShortErica ohh, that’s so weird! I honestly never even really read the directions because I had spoken to her. I feel like an insider with cool info now LOL

me & you both not liking the sleeping mask🙋‍♀️ (for me-lip or face) @CC3616.....I destashed all I had but got more foils in. Maybe I'm just being stubborn🤨 but it's basically a top. When I used the face s. mask, my face felt like it couldn't breathe-not good for my oily acne prone face🙄and I didnt have the layer of moisturizer underneath 😱 the lip s.mask did more damage than it did any good. I saved some lil foils left so I'll give it another go when my skin is feeling extra thirsty I guess.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Congratulations on leveling up @byme4u ! 🥳 I’m sorry about the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask! You might want to try a heavier lip balm like the BKR Paris Water Balm, it’s more moisturizing than the LANEIGE ( just a suggestion... ) and has a thicker consistency. 😉

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Woohoo! Congrats on your 200th post and leveling up @byme4u! Sorry to hear the Laneige lip mask didn’t work out for you. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@byme4u Congrats on making rookie III!
